My husband and I stopped by during the day to tour the theater. We had the run of the theater the entire time--even as we went floor by floor and walked around to all of the boxes and seats. I recommend stopping by if you're interested and have 15-30 minutes. There's also a little pamphlet with information about the facility.... More

Went to see Oak Ridge Boys in concert. The show was fantastic and it being held in this old opera house made it extra special. Check out their calendar of events!

I love this opera house. I feel like I'm back in my childhood whenever I go there. The decor is beautiful. They also have comfortable seats and great acoustics, plus a variety of great shows

My husband and I took his parents here to see the guys from Jersey Boys. It was a music production, not the play. They really enjoyed the guys and the music, I really enjoyed the Opera house. It was a nostalgic time for me, as I use to go to the movies there during the era it was a movie... More

Some seats are a little tight though and I felt cramped in the balcony seating, although I'm small framed and 5'3"!! They do offer wine, beer and snacks and you can buy a sippy cup to take your...

Great venue, but very close seating. Not much leg room. Upper balcony seats had good views. If you sit on the upper balcony, be prepared for a lot of stairs to get up there.

A very intimate venue. Liked the addition of the "sippy cups" that let you take a beverage to your seat. Also nice to have so many restaurants near by.

We had a wonderful time. The Opera House is beautiful. Seating was a little cramped. But we loved the atmosphere.
